How It Works
'Multiple settings ensures iDRIVE suits everyones driving style'
ECO mode is designed for economy by reducing the accelerator response time. Also handy when you are on the trails and looking for a bit more throttle control when crawling.
Ultimate Mode offers 9 sensitivity levels, this allows the driver to tune the controller to the desired level of sensitivity.Choose level 9 and grip the steering wheel tight or hit level 1 for a gentle smooth acceleration.
Automatic control mode automatically selects the sensitivity level based on pedal pressure. If you are in traffic and accelerating gently the iDRIVE will automatically choose a reduced level of throttle response. If you accelerate hard for overtaking or just even just for fun the iDRIVE will choose a mode with an increased level of throttle response. Automatic Control mode is what makes iDRIVE the most intelligent throttle controller on the market.
Rather than a traditional accelerator cable, many modern vehicles use 'fly by wire' throttle technology. This system relies on a sensor that measures the pedal pressure and position and sends a signal to the vehicle's engine computer which converts to acceleration. Many of these fly by wire systems have a noticeable delay. iDRIVE allows you to tune the signal from the accelerator pedal with multiple inbuilt settings to ensure you find a setting that suits your driving style, although there are other products on the market that can offer this performance.
So what makes iDRIVE different?
iDRIVE includes an automatic control function that changes the level of throttle performance based on pedal pressure. So if you are in traffic and accelerating gently the iDRIVE will select setting 1. If you are accelerating hard to overtake, towing a heavy trailer, or just having fun the iDRIVE will select 9. The result is the smoothest aftermarket control module on the market. We are so confident you will love your iDRIVE if you don't we will give you your money back.
How To Install
Turn ignition off.
Unplug the connector plugged into the accelerator pedal assembly.
Plug the iDRIVE connector into the vehicle’s accelerator pedal. Be cautious not to force into position as this may result in bent pins in the plug. iDRIVE connector should fit easily into position. Although removing the accelerator pedal from the firewall is not required, it may make access to the plug easier.
Re-fit connector into the iDRIVE.
Using cable ties supplied, securely mount the iDRIVE cable in a position that will not affect the operation of the pedals.
Mount the control module on the dash in a position that is easy to access. You may want to check the position at night to ensure the display doesn’t affect night driving.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How does it work?
The iDRIVE throttle controller modifies the voltage signal from the fly by wire pedal assembly to allow you to tune the response from your accelerator pedal and greatly reduce the dead zone from when you initially depress the pedal commonly referred to as throttle lag. The iDRIVE does not plug into the OBDII port.
Does iDRIVE increase power output?
No, iDRIVE throttle controllers wont increase power output. They have no control over fuel mapping, air fuel ratio or injection timing etc. iDRIVEs simply change the way your throttle responds for sharper response. Although the exact result is hard to explain it basically wakes the car up and makes the acceleration feel less lazy.
Is iDRIVE suitable for Towing?
iDRIVE throttle controllers are very useful for towing as they help to get the vehicle moving with less effort, especially useful for towing around town where there is a lot of stopping and starting.
Is iDRIVE suitable for Manual Transmission?
iDRIVE throttle controllers are suited to both Automatic and Manual transmission.
Is iDRIVE hard to install?
On most vehicles an iDRIVE can be installed in less than 2 minutes with no special tools or technical knowledge required. It is a simple plug and play device that is designed to specifically integrate into your vehicle.
Is iDRIVE universal or vehicle specific?
Although there are many shared applications, each iDRIVE application is relatively unique to each vehicle. Please check our application guide to see if your model is available. If you don't see your vehicle listed please feel free to contact us to check as we are adding new applications all the time.
Is iDRIVE suitable for petrol vehicles?
The iDRIVE throttle controller can be used on both naturally aspirated and forced induction Petrol and Diesel engines.
Can't I just press the accelerator down faster to replicate the same response?
IDRIVE throttle controllers work in 2 ways. When you first depress the pedal there is what is referred to as a dead zone where there is very little response, no matter how hard or fast you hit the pedal you can't overcome this. The iDRIVE converts this signal to action, greatly reducing this dead zone. The second part is opening the throttle earlier in the pedal stroke, in theory you might be able to replicate this by pressing the pedal faster and harder, but in practice you can't. For anyone who doubts the effectiveness of an iDRIVE throttle controller, I highly recommend taking advantage of our 30 day money back guarantee. If you are not 100% happy with the result you can send it back for a full refund – no questions asked.
When the iDRIVE was first launched on the market, on one of the Ford Rangers forums there was a gent who constantly told perspective customers they were wasting their money and could just put their foot down harder to get the same result. After weeks of this persons negative comments – I offered to send him one with an invoice. If he was happy with it he could pay the invoice, if not I would pay for the return postage. Not only did he pay the invoice, he then went on to post a full apology and very generous product review.
Will iDRIVE work with other modifications?
Aftermarket Cruise Control – Yes, to date we have not seen an aftermarket cruise control that won't work with an iDRIVE including units that plug directly into the fly by wire system.
ECU Tune / Re-flash – Yes, iDRIVE throttle controllers can still be used after an ECU tune/reflash. In most instances tuners don't change throttle parameters. Even when throttle parameters are changed the adjustability of throttle response that the iDRIVE provides can still be quite useful.
Power Chips / Exhaust – Yes, Power chips and upgraded exhaust system work on a different part of the car so an iDRIVE will only compliment the positive effects of chips and exhausts.
Will an iDRIVE void my new car warranty?
Any aftermarket/non-genuine modification you make to your new car will have some impact on your new car warranty, if it is deemed to have caused the issue you are seeking warranty on. In respect to iDRIVE, iDRIVE Australia has done extensive testing to ensure a correctly fitted iDRIVE wont damage your vehicle. The iDRIVE has been designed so that if it develops a fault, the vehicle can be put back to factory settings and the vehicle will return to normal operation. So if you are ever concerned, simply remove the iDRIVE and plug the factory wiring back into the pedal assembly. In the unlikely event that the iDRIVE does damage your vehicle the iDRIVE is fully covered by our product liability insurance.
My iDRIVE doesn't turn off?
iDRIVE throttle controllers don't require there own power source. They rely on power from the accelerator pedal. In many vehicles, when power to the ignition is cut many accessories take some time to power down. You may find it will take 30 seconds before your iDRIVE turns off. It may also turn off during periods of inactivity such as when cruise control is in operation. Simply touching the accelerator will instantly turn it on.
